Here at Liam J Cross Writing & Editing, we support writers of every avenue – no matter who they are or what they write. If you’re someone who uses their wonderful imagination to string beautiful words together, you’re more than welcome here. Heck, you’re welcome here even if you don’t. We could really use the extra views…

On a serious note, though… if you’re a regular reader here, you’ll already know that we love our writing prompts, and that we make sure to post at least one a week. But on further reflection, we realised that our posting schedule is missing a little something-something. And what was that something?

Poetry prompts.

And since we’re behind on them, it’s your lucky day, you wonderful poet you, because in this post you’re getting three in one go. We hope you’re ready.

The Prompts

Poem One:

  • Scenery/Vibe: A medieval kingdom – knights and swords and armor and battlefields
  • Poem’s Message: Hope. That there’s always hope.


Poem Two:

Heart with a red oil pastel

  • Scenery/Vibe: Inside the human heart – veins and capillaries and warmth and blood
  •  Poem’s message: Love makes the world go round.


Poem Three: 

Aerial Photography of City during Evening

  • Scenery/Vibe: The taste of a new city – bright lights and sunsets and new dawns and old beginnings.
  • Poem’s message: New beginnings are fresh, but there’s nothing that can make you smile like a happy memory.

A Regular Feature

So there you have it – three poetry prompts to kick that creative brain of yours into gear. We recommend using these even if you don’t often write poetry, as it can be a great way to improve your overall writing ability.

If you like this idea, please let us know. If that’s the case, we’ll likely make them a weekly feature on the blog, just like our usual writing prompts.

Try this prompt for size and create something based on it. If you do write something, please share it with us in one way or another. Tag us in a post, post it in the comments, send it to us in an email – we’d love to read your work.

Who knows? If you send something our way and we really like the way you write, we might just offer you a discount on our editing services. Or we might even edit a few chapters for free. It’s worth a try on your part.

You can reach us with your submission or with any questions/inquiries here.
